How to create an admin panel in wordpress


Staff member
I am very new to writing plugins for wordpress.

I am looking at writing a plugin where a user can upload an image, and a certain style(coded in the back end) is applied to the image. Then i would allow a user to use a short code to input the image.

(the above is just an example of what i need to do... its a little bit more complex than this but im sure i can code it up once i get a start)

So i the shortcode i can do.

Firstly how would i go about creating a admin panel that can upload an image, and store that image in the database.

when ever a user would upload the image the previous image would be overwritten.

If someone has a link to a good tutorial on creating admin panels that would be great. the ones out there are just not working for me.
